Prime Minister Holness said the private security industry is an essential component of the national security framework, providing security to communities, homes and corporate assets.

He said the Government continues to pursue initiatives to improve citizen security and public safety in partnership with the private security industry.

He said public sector support is important as the government moves to expand its closed circuit camera system in a National Network.
